For most of my 20’s, I was hell-bent on becoming successful. My then 20-something brain thought that being successful meant having a ton of money in the bank, and worked tirelessly to accomplish that goal. A lot of nights were spent sleepless; fueled by caffeine and a drive that likely came from a sense of […]

One of my favorite movies is Minority Report, featuring Tom Cruise. In the film, we watch as the main character fights an internal battle between performing his job, and fighting his internal demons; heartbreak, loss, pain and addiction. One scene that always stood out to me was the scene where Hanks is watching clips of […]

Earlier this week, I was at a park with Atlas. As he played in the playground, I noticed a woman carrying an orange balloon while she walked up one of the paths. Early in the morning, it seemed like an unlikely time for somebody to be walking with a balloon, and I was curious to […]

If you’ve read my blog for a while – or spoken to me – you’ve likely heard me tell the story about the ice cream cone and the sundae, as first told to me by my Mom. It goes something like this: When my Mom was a child, she went to an ice cream parlor […]

To this day, I don’t even like to think about them, their names, appearance or even the sound of the theme song that played at the start of the first film, The Lion, […]

Note from Aaron:  If profanity offends you, then this probably isn’t a blog you should read. Or, it might be exactly the blog you need to read. In most cases, I like to use asterisks to block out vulgar words, but I feel like they need to be seen for what they are – vulgar – in […]

Lately, I’ve chatted with several people who have told me they are deeply grieved by things happening in the news. Grieved, to the point that they feel depression, sadness and even a lack of motivation to continue on with their lives as usual. “Did you hear about X!?” ”Can you believe Y?!” ”BABIES ARE BEING […]

One of the things I noticed before becoming a parent, is that almost everybody has an opinion on how to parent properly. From parenting books to early childhood development gurus, there are a lot of experts in the field of parenting that all seem to give their 2 cents on what makes for a perfect […]
